Welcome to the pages of Charité's Office of Family Affairs.

These pages provide information on a range of subjects relating to the challenges of combining work/study and family life. You will also find information on important projects and activities, about our recertification as a “family friendly university” (familiengerechte hochschule), the “work & family audit” (audit berufundfamilie), and services available. Don't hesitate to contact us with your questions, suggestions, and ideas. Sincerely, the staff of the Family-friendly Charité Coordinating Office

A welcome gift for all Charité babies

Preparing for the arrival of a new baby prompts many questions. When should I tell my employer? How will I prepare for my time away from work? How will I manage my return to work after my absence? Members of staff from both the Office of Family Affairs and Human Resources are available to answer these and many other questions. We also have a team of volunteers dedicated to providing advice specifically aimed at other expectant fathers, including on the challenges of combining work and family life. The web pages provided by the Office of Family Affairs provide information, guidelines and advice which can be useful to both members of staff and their managers.


As a small token of our appreciation, all members of staff who welcome a new baby into the world in 2016 or 2017 will receive a T-shirt for the new arrival (photo). To claim your gift, please visit the Office for Women's Affairs and Equal Opportunities or the Office of Family Affairs on Campus Virchow-Klinikum. You will need to present your child's birth certificate.
